At the beginning of July, the bookcase on Rudolf-Eberle-Platz in Bad Säckingen burned down. A replacement is already in place less than two weeks later. Should mark.
“We said right away: there will be a refrigerator again,” Martina Huber says firmly. She is the head of the city library and in charge of the bookstores in Bad Säckingen. A new refrigerator has been sitting on Rudolf-Eberle-Platz since last Friday – nine days after the old one burned down.
About 1 a.m. on July 5, the fire brigade was called: the bookcase was on fire. The fire brigade was able to quickly extinguish the fire, but not a single book survived the fire. “Everything completely burned out,” says Hooper. The police report after the fire indicated that it was suspected of arson. According to Hooper, the association will file a complaint against unknown persons. The bookcase has been the target of vandalism in the past.
The new fridge – now white – is a model that was previously used at Wallbach’s book exchange. Library Director Hooper recalled that it had recently been replaced and is now in the town hall yard. A few hours after asking for technical services, the replacement cabinet was already in Rudolf-Eberle-Platz. “When I wanted to fill the closet with books on Sunday evening, it was half full again,” says Hooper. “This indicates the importance of the treasury in the city.”
